the bottem isnt that flat on our cars. you would have to also cut parts of it out and drill holes. they dont look like there is material that goes far back enough to mount correctly either.

i still have sets of these if your interested

A splitter is supposed to help with downforce. Those splitters are pointing parallel to the wind direction which will not really help your front end down force. They dont seem functional, but they do look cool.

Right but the splitters stick out past the base of the bumper which creates a high pressure area above the splitter and a smooth surface underneath. The smooth surface creates a low pressure area which adds to the downforce created by the high pressure above.

Do you have any detailed photos of the splitters (unmounted) themselves and that of their mounting points? Thanks.

How about unmounted shots in detail, identifying the mounting points? Thanks.
